There’s more good news about antibody therapy to fight and prevent severe symptoms triggered by the covid 19 disease.
Chinese experts have just said they have developed an antibody therapy to treat and prevent severe Covid-19 which has been shown to be effective in animals.
They said the treatment does the following:
“retains neutralising ability to most Sars-CoV-2 variants of concern, with more potent neutralising activity against the Delta variant”.
According to the latest important reports, the team, from institutes including the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Capital Medical University, and China’s Centre for Disease Control, published their findings in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Immunology on Tuesday.
Another important issue that we should mention is that experts said that their treatments lead to fewer escaping mutations.
Julian Tang, a clinical virologist at the University of Leicester in England who was not involved in the study, said that it is important for the product to go through human clinical trials to show its effectiveness.
“It is impossible to predict exactly how the virus will mutate in order to design this into any specific monoclonal antibody [a lab-made protein that mimics the immune system’s ability to fight off harmful pathogens] – and this study uses mutations seen in previous variants.”
Coronavirus vaccines in the news
The other day, we revealed that the latest coronavirus remains a subject of interest these days amidst the geopolitical tensions that are unfolding.
Experts who used to say that the covid vaccines which are using the mRNA tech have nothing to do with our DNA’s used to be bashed and called conspiracy theorists. Well, things seem to be changing now.
